London: As Mohamed Salah, the footballer born in the Egyptian city of Basyoun, scores goal after goal, Liverpool Football Club fans embrace the "TheEgyptianKing" with some interesting chants and slogans.
""I think I'm about 10 Mo Salah goals away from becoming Muslim," read a message on Twitter posted by @OSMLFC.

Mo Salah has turned me in to a devout Muslim catch me outside the mosque if you’re looking for me— bradley (@bradleymaguire_) February 15, 2018
Another Twitter user Will Baird (@bairdy_10) expressed his love for the latest "Soccer Star" in these words:
"Mo Salah is so good I'm considering turning Muslim #TheEgyptianKing."
If these twitter posts are not enough, those on stands are chanting slogans to celebrate the 25-year-old forward.
""Mo Sa-la-la-la-lah, Mo Sa-la-la-la-lah, if he's good enough for you, he's good enough for me, if he scores another few, then I'll be Muslim too," fans have been filmed chanting from the stadiums to the pubs as they watch Salah's footwork at play, according to Al Jazeera.
"He's sitting in the mosque, that's where I want to be", the rhyme continues.
Salah, who also plays for Egypt's national team, is quickly becoming a darling of the English football community.
In 2017, he was named the BBC's African Footballer of the Year.
On Wednesday, he became the thirteenth player in Liverpool FC's 125-year history to score his 30th goal in a season in a match against Porto, prompting some to compare Salah with Argentina's footballing legend, Lionel Messi.
Luis Suarez, who plays for FC Barcelona, was the last player to achieve 30 goals in a season, in April 2014.
